Possible but very difficult and highly unlikely.

 

All you have to do is to use a little common sense and not accept any bluetooth messages from strangers and do not install any dodgy applications and you should be fine.

Re: virus on s40?

It is not possible for a virus to infect a S40 phone.

It may be different for a worm/trojan horse, but those would require user intervention to install and run.

Agreed. You may have a *faulty* device but you almost certainly do not have an *infected* device.

Re: virus on s40?

Ok I understand it.....I have experimented a lot......And I am using Nokia mobiles since 2008.
In my experiments I got a the source of the problem.The problem is happening due to the errors in Software.If we update the device software(Menu>Settings>Device>Device Update),the problem could be solved.

Re: virus on s40?

S40 device will not be affected by virus.
But SD CARD (memory card) has the chance of affecting virus.

Effects:

1) It will slow down phone speed
2) gallery will take time to open
3) files will open very slow

clear virus using antivirus using pc....
